Full payment submission (FPS) adjustment - The basics

Created on  | Last modified on 

Summary

This guide explains how to send the Full Payment Submissions (FPS) adjustment in Sage 50cloud Payroll.

Description

You need to submit a FPS every time that you make a payment to an employee. If you make any changes to the pay period in Sage 50cloud Payroll after you submit the FPS, you need to submit an FPS adjustment to let HMRC know.

Don't worry, we have simple steps below for you to follow for this process!

Resolution

When you need to submit an FPS adjustment

  • You make an amendment to an employee's pay after submitting the FPS. For example, you forgot to pay an employee's overtime so reprocessed.
  • If you submit the FPS then find out that an employee has left. You should submit the FPS adjustment to notify HMRC of the employee's leave date.

When an FPS adjustment isn't possible

  • You've included the employee on a future FPS. You can't submit the FPS adjustment for an earlier period. Simply submit your next FPS as normal and the changes are included.
  • You haven't included the employee in an FPS for this period. You can't submit an FPS adjustment before you submit the normal FPS.
